Just now on teletext flight arrivals I saw a couple of weird flights arriving.
UA918Y from san diego and washington expected 01.55 into LHR (was a UA918 due in early morning too)
QF157 from LHR into MAN (i checked and there was no BA flight number straight afterwards so wasnt a codeshare)
why the strange UA flight number and have QF started a service mack to MAN via LHR now? or was it a BA codeshare shuttle with a digit missing?

What's funny is that I didn't hear the afternoon QF service call BA ops at MAN today! (Afternoon flights: QF6024 = positioner MAN-LHR, return QF183). Should last until the beginning of the winter timetable (but may be around a bit longer than that).
As for the UA movement, I've noticed that whenever a servive there gets delayed to the following day, you'll see it listed as the original flght number plus "y" (presumably "y" meaning "yesterday's")
